Skip to comments.Obama: Does Romney want ‘to start another war’ in Middle East?
Posted on 09/23/2012 8:04:00 PM PDT by WilliamIII
President Barack Obama hit back hard in a "60 Minutes" interview broadcast Sunday at Mitt Romney's criticisms of his handling of Syria and Iran, saying that if the Republican standard-bearer "is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so." Obama also brushed aside talk that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been pressuring him to take a harder line on Iran's suspicious nuclear program source of some of Romney's sharpest campaign-trail criticisms. "When it comes to our national security decisions-- any pressure that I feel is simply to do what's right for the American people. And I am going to block out any noise that's out there," the president said. "Now I feel an obligation -- not pressure but obligation -- to make sure that we're in close consultation with the Israelis-- on these issues, because it affects them deeply," Obama said. "They're one of our closest allies in the region. And we've got an Iranian regime that has said horrible things that directly threaten Israel's existence."

Sorry Barry. You don’t seem to understand. The “Middle East” is at war WITH US whether we want to play or not. You need to wake the **** up and understand that.
exactly, obama keeps saying if we re-elect him, they will like us. what a farce
“Let’s see what I’ve done since I came into office: I said I’d end the war in Iraq. I did.”
Lying sh*t. He wanted to stay longer, but the Iraqi government made us exit on BUSH’S timetable.
Dear leader misses the whole point. You avoid war by being strong enough and resolute enough to convince your enemy that it would foolish and futile to attack you, or to provoke an attack from you.
I don’t know Barry, you seem to doing a fine job of creating wars in the Middle East all by your self.
“is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so.”
What a dufus. Radical Islam is at war with us. This idiot does not have a clue or does not care.
It’s outrageous that president know nothing is selling himself as a foreign policy expert because he happened to be president when george bush’s seals killed bin laden
(If it still george bush’s economy, then those were george bush’s SEALsL
How does obama not get we are already at war in the middle east, good lord the man is insane.
We are watching the liquifying of his grey matter.
Really? How does that square with letting 50+ Gitmo prisoners go when you know they end up back in the Mideast killing our troops. You are a fraud, sir.
This from the president who started 2 wars in nations which were our allies (Libya, Egypt).
Now he can't even say Egypt is our ally anymore.
I hope this Ghetto PIG has nightmares for the rest of his miserable life about the horror that Ambassador Stevens had to go through before he died. Our PIG of president is responsible for Ambassador Steven's death. And to think Bill "the rapist" Clinton is playing Obama's bi*ch in this fiasco!
My dream is to see Obama tried for treason and locked up for the rest of his life in a Federal Prison.
He knows what he’s doing. And he’s doing it intentionally.
here we go with he’s a war monger campaigne
Obama is an international aggressor, warmongering and murderer.
He does not dare admit that AQ sent him a message on 9-11-2012 by killing our ambassador. He blames it on a film. Americans get killed because he wants to create the perception that he created good will toward America with his appeasement.
Hey Obama, what you dont seem to get(Even though you have Muslims in the streets of Libya and Pakistan with Obama coffins) is that the Muslim world is at war with US..they are the ones that killed 3,000 Americans in 9/11, they are the ones who again murdered innocent Americans on 9/11 AGAIN..What this schmuck refuses to see is that his “peaceful” muslim buddies want us all dead and when they hit us we have to hit them hard back
Our muzlim leader knows it better than you and I.
Get ready for the end run!
How’s that appeasement technique working out for ya, comrade obama?
The war’s on, bitch! When are we going to start shooting back?!
